Dear Sirs,

My name is ___________ and I am currently a year 11 student at ________, studying for AS levels in __________________________ having achieved 6 A* grades and 4A grades at GCSE. I hope to study for a law degree at university, with the intention of becoming a solicitor/barrister.

I feel it would be invaluable for me to gain experience and further knowledge of the legal world by carrying out a work placement, ideally in October, and was wondering if it would be possible to carry out such a placement at your firm. I would be available between ______________________.

My hobbies include playing rugby, cycling and reading; “The Justice Game” by Geoffrey Robertson fascinated me and I decided that I should gain some work experience to confirm that it is the career for me. I also enjoy working on the school magazine, and it has showed me the importance of commitment, and punctuality, characteristics that I would bring to your firm. I am a confident person, and hope to take an active role in the debating society when it gets underway later this year.

I appreciate that this is short notice, but would be extremely grateful for any amount of time you would be able to have me for, and I would be prepared to work within any aspect of the law.

Yours faithfully,
